TARRYTOWN, N.Y., May 12, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NightFood Holdings, Inc. (OTC:NGTF), “The Nighttime Snack Company”, today announced that the Company recently completed its first in-store sampling programs with outstanding results; NightFood sold out in each Fairway Market store in which product demonstrations were held.
While it’s too early to draw definitive conclusions about the long-term impact of the demonstrations, the Company is reporting encouraging post-demonstration sales indicators.
On the heels of the successful rollout, Fairway Market has chosen NightFood as one of the select brands featured as part of its Grassroots Marketing Program. In addition, the Company and Fairway are planning to feature NightFood point of purchase display units in all Fairway stores in the coming months.
The Company has also announced distribution through SpartanNash supermarkets. In addition to operating 163 retail supermarkets across the Midwest, SpartanNash is the largest food distributor serving US military commissaries around the world.
SpartanNash has agreed to initially carry NightFood in 24 of their corporate supermarkets, including D&W Fresh Market, and Forest Hills Food. To support the roll-out, in-store product sampling will be conducted, along with the introduction of NightFood product floor displays.
“In-store demonstrations are an excellent tool to drive awareness and engage our target market, but quickly scaling to thousands of supermarkets across the country requires other strategies as well, including point of purchase initiatives. Identifying effective and efficient ways to drive consumer trial at point of purchase is a focus of ours as we work to bring on additional chains in the northeast and across the country,” volunteered Peter Leighton, NightFood CMO.
“We’re excited about the opportunity to introduce display units into these two chains, and others as well. SpartanNash is the first major chain that’s come on board as a direct result of our distribution relationship with KeHE,” said NightFood CEO Sean Folkson. “Our success at Fairway helped make this possible, and each successful launch will continue to bring additional opportunities to the NightFood brand. The goal now is to continue to refine our messaging and strategies so that we have a proven template for our national supermarket rollout.”
